Fundamentally, there are three main types of finish available through the TIMBECK Factory Pre-Coating facility :
- Penetrating Oils
- Vacuum Coated & U.V. Cured Lacquers
- Spray Applied Two Pack Polyurethane
The Oil range is suitable for both Weather Exposed and Weather Protected applications while Lacquers and Polyurethanes are primarily suitable for Weather Protected applications only.
A very natural looking finish – easily maintained and recoated – an excellent choice for external claddings and also ideal for ceilings, soffits and internal wall finishes to more formal areas where human contact is negligible.
Our most widely applied standard for pre-coated products is one coat of CUTEK CD50 Oil. The factory application of this material ensures that all faces and edges receive the important first coat which greatly contributes to the long term stability of the timber. Cut ends are the only part of the board which require on-site attention during the installation phase.
For panelling, a further coat on-site following completion of the installation is optional. Additional coats may be chosen depending on the depth of colour pigmentation that may have been selected. If a further on-site coating is not specified, some hand brushing of the factory applied oil may be necessary to even out the retention of the initial oil.
For cladding, a minimum of one further coat on-site following completion of the cladding installation is recommended. Additional coats may be required depending on the exposure orientation of the surface and also the depth of colour pigmentation that may have been selected.
Lacquers - Vacuum Coated and U.V. Cured
A more robust finish and extremely versatile. Suitable as a finish to ALL internal and fully weather protected external surfaces - walls, ceilings, soffits. Internally, lacquers are normally preferred where panelling is subject to higher levels of surface contact and wear – e.g. passageways, stairwells and family rooms.
The application of our lacquers starts with a finely sanded board. An initial sealer coat is applied to face, back and edges in one application. This is dried and the board is again fine sanded. The final coat is applied, again all round, and the product is then U.V. cured.
The factory applied coating to all faces and edges greatly contributes to the long-term stability of the timber. Cut ends are the only part of the product which may be given further on-site attention during the installation phase.
Spray Applied Two Pack Polyurethane
- A high performance clear finish for interior hard wearing areas
- Extremely hard when fully cured with high chemical abrasion resistance
- Available in varying gloss levels
- Controlled film thickness by automated spray application.
